Raptology: What do you want your legacy to be? How do you want to be remembered?
YCS Money: I really wanna be in the position to help people. I really love working with kids, especially ones that suffer from any sort of disabilities. It’s so hard being a kid as it is. I just love helping em! I remember watching stories on Michael Jackson and how much he did for children and being
such a big fan. I feel like that definitely instilled that “want” to help inside of me.
